Transnational Education in Morocco: Current and Future Challenges
Benahnia, Abdellah
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n11 p127-133 2015
Transnational education (TNE) is becoming a phenomenon in the world of education in many countries. Morocco is included. The flourishing and spreading of many foreign educational institutions, products, and activities is becoming noticeable. As an Islamic nation, Morocco has long maintained its business and educational ties with different foreign nations. It has also maintained its traditional means of education alongside the adapted European style of education which spread all over the country following its independence. Given that reality, this paper will seek answers to the following concerns: --To what extent does transnational education have an impact on local and national culture, identity and gender issues? -- Are there inherent tensions between the external providers and the local cultural setting, and the conservative and liberal political parties? -- What would be the future of TNE and educational design in Morocco? In addition to the above concerns, the issue of external vs. local educational products is an extremely complex issue that is worth investigating.
